Volunteer Opportunities

WHAT DO OUR VOLUNTEERS DO?

Frontier College Ottawa's Homework Club program provides homework help to children and youth all over Canada. Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, our Homework Clubs will be held online for 2021. Frontier College Ottawa is currently looking for tutors to help children and youth grades 1 to 6 (ages 6 to 12) with their French homework as well as their French reading and writing skills to accommodate the high demand for French learning support in Ottawa.
